Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

Open Question

My 7 year old Maytag Neptune washer mah6500AWQ leave some water below the level of the drum. Spining the drum by hand you can hear it swishing around. Durings the last 10 seconds of the cycle it seems to start the filling again and then stops for removal of clothes. Also, below the door rubber gasket there is a small amount of water I collect up with a sponge. The drain holes are about 1/2 inch above this point. Go figure!

SOURCE: CODE SYMBOL " LR" (MAYTAG NEPTUNE SERIAL # MAH6500AWQ")

LR usually means that the the signal from the board is not getting to the motor either because of a bad connection at either the motor or the board or the motor itself is no good. Need to check the connections first.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MAH-1 won't stop filling with water

A couple things may be going on here... you may not want to hear, but the Neptune has a had many "consumer related problems".

If your complaint is "will not stop filling with water" I would access your inlet water-valve (typically blue with 2 black battery looking solenoids; where your water-lines connect directly), test for continuity and replace as necessary. Sometimes inlet-water valves also go bad where the complaint is: "no water comes in at all".

SOURCE: Water Leak from the Front Door of our Maytag Epic MFW9700S

The water leaking is most likely the gasket. It may have a little rip or something making it not seal. Im not sure about Maytag but on our GE we had to slide the the top back to remove some screws then (I believe to was for the control panel) Then we removed screws for the door and the front of the washer. When that was done you have to remove a round clamp that holds the gasket on. Then replace the gasket.

My suggestion is to have a appliance repair come and do it. Its a pain to do, at least it was for me.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Error COde "nd"

This is now the 3rd time this has happened. The 1st 2 times it cost me ~$100 to have a technician come in and fix.

This time, I did it easily. For my Maytag Neptune washer, I removed the back panel (2 screws). On the bottom tray is the water discharge pump. On the output side of the pump there is a small cavity under the rubber flapper where a nickle fits perfectly. I removed the nickle, reattached the output drain line. started it up ...

and viola! the problem solved.

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

Water in the washer.


First I would have posted this in the washer section not the vacuum section. That being said:

This is normal for a maytag Neptune. There is a liquid filled balance ring on the Neptune washer drum. That is the sloshing you are hearing. The smell is from the water trapped between the door seal and drum. You can wipe down this seal with an old cotton towel or sock and then throw it in with your next load. Also, just leave your door open a crack after your loads are done and the water will evaporate and not sit and get moldy.

My 10+ year old Maytag Neptune washer has standing water behind the drum after the spin cycle


Griffin is correct but, I took it one step further and removed the front cover and rubber gasket and used a long thin brush after spraying white vinegar with a spray bottle and cleaned all the **** from around the drum. I use white vinegar with clothes once in a while to keep the drum free of built up soap and softner.Its a little work but trust me when you see all the stuff on the drum you will understand why the machine stinks. I also leave my soap tray door open all the time to allow air inside.

Hello, The earlier Maytag Neptune front loaders have a balance ring on the inner tub that has liquid in it and that causes the sloshing sound when you turn the tub by hand. That is normal.

I noticed that you have a MAH3000... Have you replaced your door latch wax motor yet? If not, it will fail and damage your control board located behind the timer. See NeptuneHelpSong for a video that explains the failure.

I hope this helps...

Hi I have a Maytag Neptune model MAH5500BWW Serial B4585662GA. When I turn the drum, I can still hear water inside/behind the drum. Thank you


This is normal. There is a balance ring filled with water attached to the inner drum. The balance ring is sealed and is not supposed to be empty. When you turn the inner drum by hand, you're hearing the water settling down from the now upper chambers of the balance ring.

Error code 0e


Hi, it is the pressure switch aka water level sensor. OE is overflow error. Pressure switch is located under top cover on front right hand side. It is round and has a rubber tube leading down to the drum and a electrical connection to the board. Paid maytag man to diagnose/install cost me about $150.

There is a recall on the circuit board for certain Maytag Neptune washers. See the link below:

if it is a Maytag neptune YES that sound is normal. especially when you rotate the drum by hand that is your balance ring you are hearing. Do you only use liquid detergent? if yes this might be your problem. it leaves a film around the drum. i would run 3 wash cycles with bleach and hot water. and then at least once a month with hot water and bleach to keep it fresh and also leave the door open so that it can air dry oder causeing bacteria love moisture.

Water won't completely drain from tub. Door seal is very moldy.


Had a simular problem. In my unit the water was not visible in the drum but you could hear it when you turned the drum by hand.  The answer as told to me by the Maytag repair man:  The machine is designed to hold the water after the cycle is complete.  As he was replacing the boot seal he suggested to just leave the door open so the seal will dry out and not mold.  This has been working for the past several years.  No mold has appeared on the new boot seal.  

From another source I read that the water is left in the machine for balance.

Water Sounds


Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!


This is normal for the Neptune!
I used to have a Neptune and I sold them too!!
The machine is wringing out the clothes good??
The Neptune comes new with water in ti from the test run!
All the water never gets totally discharged. This is one reason why everyone complains about the mold, musky or even stinky smell of the Neptune! Every day i have people here asking what too do about the moldy wet smell!
SERIOUS!!!!!
I do tell them to run the washer once a week without clothes and with hot water and 1/4 cup of bleach. And then make suer to do only white clothes directly after wards as not to get a drop of beach water on a colored article of clothing!
Then leave the door open after every load when not in use!
That's Maytag!!!!!!!!
GOOD THING WHIRLPOOL JUST BOUGHT THEM OUT LAST YEAR!
Perhaps they will make some good changes!!

Hope this helps and makes you feel a little better as to some water sounds! HOW OLD IS THE WASHER??????

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
